DIY Disney Costumes

With all the medical issues going on in our family, our girls decided to put their heads together to come up with last-minute DIY Disney costumes! We heart Disney so when I came home last week from work to see my girls dressed up by using their own imagination with clothes in their closet……

the biggest smile stretched across my face. Meet my Disnerd and Animal Kingdom Safari Cast Member. Are they not the cutest? This shows everyone that practical items can be used for dress up. We had a fun night celebrating Halloween, but now we are excited for all things Christmas. Oh wait – yes, we will be thankful for God giving us heartbeats and breaths but I am choosing to thank Him every night before I go to bed.

Stay tuned for lots of holiday posts! 🙂

How did this happen?

Big Sis Highschool

Another big change has happened in our household. Big Sis is in Highschool. How did this happen? Homeschooling her for the last three years has been a blessing, but she is eager to go back to public school and enjoy her high school years. After discussions, my husband and I both thought this would be a great adventure for Big Sis!

She is wanting to work for Disney Animation after college, and I will be cheering her on every step of the way. This first semester she is taking a scientific and visual technical class which is a stepping stone to her future career.

I’m excited to share with you how life is with a high school student.

Our Reaction to the Total Solar Eclipse 2017 {Video}

OneMomsWorld 8.2017

Despite some cloud coverage, we were able to experience our first total solar eclipse. I checked out of work early and went straight to sign out M from her first day of school so we could experience this all together. L put together this video of our reactions. We were pretty excited and will hold this memory close to our hearts!

Bringing back the 80s….. {Must watch}

My Madi girl performed in her end of the year clogging recital this past weekend. I’m so incredibly proud of her talents. She received an award for 9 years of clogging.

Have you heard of clogging? Check out one of her dances from the recital.

My girls keep me sane!

Life is in the fast lane. As of yesterday, I have one month to finish this semester. My girls see me come home from work, do the tasks that need to be completed on the home front, and then sit down to do homework. They never complain. I worry and feel guilty about the time that I spend on homework, then I look at my girls and they open their arms to give me the biggest hug. There are moments that tears fill my eyes thinking about missing time with them, but then I take the time to remind them why mom went back to school for another degree. Both girls assure me they understand and will always love me. It is at those moments, I know I can stay sane and finish this last year of school.

It is my priority to make mom and daughter time with each of them. This includes taking our dogs for walks, heading to Starbucks for a coffee treat, and watching YouTube videos. Unfortunately, there can be times when they ask me something while I am doing homework, but they have to repeat it to me because my mind was wrapped about homework. The girls never mention or get aggravated about the repeating sentences. They keep me sane.

Mom and MMom and L

The girls get me and are my biggest encouragement to continue on this path. God sure has blessed me with two daughters and I will never take that for advantage. Easter break is going to be good for family time, celebrating He is Risen, and welcoming a new family member. We are so excited to share with you! 🙂
